say a hypothetical person got popped for marijuana possession, first offense... and was on probation for one year for that reason. 6 months into the probation period, they were arrested for dui, therefore getting a dui charge on top of a violation of probation. what would be the most likely outcome? i am sure at least a bit of jail time, but how much?

I <ahem> know somebody (real handsome dude too) who got a DUI (no priors) and then caught with a quarter of sensemilla in an MV within a year and served no time. For the possession charge, they got a 50$ fine and a revoked license for 30 days, besides getting their bag taken away. This was in the '90's and in the reverse order of the person in question so things might be a little different.

A lot also depends on where this went down and what kind of a mood the judge is in the day of the court appearance.

That's only if you're a dirty thief.

My advice would be to hire a good lawyer and not seek advice on a internet message board. I'm not trying to be a smartass. I'm serious. It will be money well-spent.

Call Mark Mesler - no joke. The judges and prosecutors like him. He's also pretty cheap and won't require all of his fee up front.
